About this project
How strong are the SNAPS connectors?
We are Restrap. For over five years we have followed our passions and found solutions to the problems that we’ve run into. With a vast knowledge of hand-crafting and manufacturing products, we aim to produce everything with as little environmental impact as possible and to the highest standard. We achieve this by sourcing recycled material wherever we can, and producing each product by hand in our Leeds workshop.
What we found
We wanted a clean, stylish and easy to detach strap; one that would not only be the perfect companion to our cameras, but that would also stand up to real-world street photography and look good while doing it.
Drawing on our years of design and manufacturing, we set about solving the problem. After hours researching, designing, testing and refining the prototypes, we have perfected two complementary straps.
We’ve created two products, each solving a specific problem: a sling (to be worn around the neck or over the shoulder) and a wrist strap. Each design features our revolutionary magnetic connection system.
Introducing Shoot and the Shoot Mini
The Shoot supports your camera, gives stability to shots, and easily adjusts to suit the wearer’s movements. Your camera is there when you need it for that perfect photo opportunity. Fully adjustable for all.
The Shoot Mini can be worn on the left or right wrist. Wear it tight to give extra stability when shooting. Wear it loose to give complete access to your camera’s controls. It’s perfect for providing camera security when shooting on the streets. Fully adjustable for all.
What makes this product?
Dual 20mm magnetic connectors (“SNAPS”) make attaching, swapping or removing our straps child’s play. 50mm recycled automotive-grade seat belt webbing ensures your camera is supported and secure on long sessions. Luxury touches such as genuine suede and custom laser cut hardware mean that your strap will stand out from the crowd.
Design - the Restrap way
Since 2010 we’ve been making some of the world’s toughest pedal straps, bags and accessories. Drawing on this vast experience we’ve taken everything we’ve learned and put it into this product. We believe we have created a unique camera strap system which is not only good- looking, but fully versatile for all your camera needs.
As with all our products, we designed and manufactured the Shoot and Shoot Mini in-house to ensure our high standards are met and never compromised. We guarantee our straps will stand up to, and surpass, anything you throw at them.
We believe in our products so strongly that we’re offering a life time guarantee against manufacturing defects.
To create something extra ordinary, you have to start with more than just the ordinary. That’s why we searched far and wide, tracking down the best hardware suppliers for this product. If we couldn’t find the right component, we made it.
Each strap consists of:
- German engineered magnetic fittings with a combined brake force of 100KG
- Genuine, hardwearing suede
- Custom laser cut tri-glide buckles
- 50mm recycled automotive-grade seat belt webbing
Who are we?
At Restrap, we love good design and innovation. It's what we do best. We take everyday items, things you thought you knew, and improve them - adding unique twists to create products that are functional, neat and cutting-edge.
Based in Yorkshire, England, Restrap is a family-run business operational since 2010. We're a solid team with well-developed and tested skills. This means we're able to hand make all our products in our Leeds workshop, using locally sourced materials wherever possible.
What happens next?
Over the next few weeks the whole team here will be putting production plans together, installing our new equipment and most importantly, producing every piece of your product. We believe planning is the most important stage of production - we always like to deliver before deadlines. Not after them.
What do we need the pledges for?
All the funding raised by Kickstarter will go towards hitting minimum quantity orders on materials and extra equipment needed to produce this product. Your money will only go towards the best materials - guaranteed.
Risks and challenges
We make every effort to minimise risk. We’re an established business with our own in-house manufacturing facility and triple contingencies on our component suppliers.
Upon successful funding we’ll be in touch to get your delivery details and aim to dispatch rewards within the timeframes outlined above.
We promise to keep every pledge up-to-date with every step of the process.
We are really excited about this product and can’t wait for you to create beautiful photography with your own Shoot or Shoot Mini.
